    Starting CWP today to save my health

    So I'm over 40 and never worried about my weight and ended up at 16st 4 for my laziness.

    Today that's going to change, this is a new chapter in my life! I'm starting on CWP SS, armed with green tea, a britta filter, the CWP app and breath fresheners, I'm determined to at least get down to the given first target weight of 12st. I'm currently a size 18 verging on 20, so I'm interest where 12st will get me?

    I'm not doing this for my own vein reasons but because I know of the health complications that will soon catch up with me. Sadly both of my patents have had cancer, one is diabetic, my genes are fat and I have a condition call hemochromatosis, all of this can and probably will give me complications later in life!

    I just need to stay focused, and remind myself if I don't do this my life may be shortened!!!

    Wish me luck and any tips or bits of advice are greatly appreciated!!!

    Hiya I'm also like you. I weighed in at 16st 1. Didn't think I was that big :0 I'm also similar as sizes of 18/20. I'm currently on day 4. Day 1 I found fine. Day 2 was horrid for me headaches. Feeling Sick. Freezing cold an shaking. I even had a slice of garlic bread :/ could of cried about it. But my consultant was quick boost me!! Day 3 was fab and today is good!! I have a big family...6 children and cooking their food tests me!! I'd love to keep in touch as we are both on similar weights and I'm on SS too!! Once your in ketosis you will feel fab!! Have you had any products yet? Xxx

    P.s good luck )

    Hello, thanks for your post.

    I really relate to you, I never in a million years thought I was 16st, I've always ignored my weight and never owned any scales! In my head I'm still 20 years old and a size 14, but in reality it's not the case and I've really woken up to the fact I need to do something about it for my health.

    So day 1, I've decided to buy the premixed shakes, they fix in better to my life style. I had a strawberry shake at 10am, was a bit hungry at first, it soon wore off when I was out at dog training. Now back home and it's 2.30pm, had a black tea and really think it time for another shake, I plan to have one by 3pm and the my last one by 7pm. I'm finding the more occupied I am the less I think I'm hungry. No headaches yet, but I'm really good with drinking water.

    Please stay in touch it's nice to share this journey with someone. X

    Yes it's nice to be able to relate to someone too!! Are the pre made shakes nice? I've not tasted them yet. It's good you have taken the first step to change for your health. My reason is one...I don't want be the 'fat mum' but also as it's almost certain I will get diabetes. I'm more of a late water so tend have my shake around 8ish.


    Keeping busy really helps. When I'm not busy I tend just think about food!!! I keep worrying what if I don't lose this week!!! But on so little calories I'm hoping I do!! What day is your weigh in? Mines Tuesday

    Hope tonight continues well keep in touch!

    Well I survived the first day! Was a bit miserable towards the end of the day, especially at tea time, but my husband cooked for himself and our daughter, hopefully they can continue to fend for themselves while I do this diet!

    Woke up this morning feeling fine, just a headache but that soon passed with some water, just keeping busy until I can take my first shake, was aiming for between 10-11am.

    I must say the premixed shakes are ok, a bit like the long life shakes the kids have. But for me I can't be fuffing around making shakes at work so these are convenient, especially at weekend when out and about, I can pop one in my bag and have it anywhere.

    My weigh in is on Friday, I think that's a great incentive to bee good over the weekend, well that's the plan!

    Have you weighed yourself? I don't have scales!!! Good luck for Tuesday, let me know how you get on!!!

    Hi Vanessa.
    well done on getting through the first day. I am starting tomorrow (Monday) and I will admit I'm scared/excited/worried all at the same time.

    i have shakes, soups and porridges. My consultant gave me a bar for free incase I need to chew something but she said the bars shouldn't be used during the first two weeks ideally.hopefully I can get through this, going with one day at a time to start with. It's bank holiday here tomorrow so I will have the kids home which may make it harder as they are always asking for food.

    Im having my weigh in next sat so it won't be quite a full week but hopefully I make it to then.

    good luck on your weight loss journey

    Glad your getting on well Vanessa!! I've just ordered some pre mixed shakes for Tuesday! That's lovely of your hubby to fend for him and your daughter!!! My hubby is a chef and always working so I have to cook the little ones!!

    No I haven't had a sneaky weigh in at home as I don't have scales!!! My consultant was happy I don't...lol I guess if we were to weigh in the week and it said a weight gain we would fall off the wagon so to speak!!


    Fridays a good day for weigh in!!! You will be motivated after seeing results. Newme a Saturday weigh in will keep you on the straight over the weekend!! Mines a Tuesday :0 although makes me think no giving in especially weekends as weigh in is soon after!!

    Hope you both have fab days x

    Hey Spammie

    Struggled a little bit today, my belly was rumbling an our before my first two shakes. I fought through and not feeling too bad now!

    Day four tomorrow, hoping ketosis kicks in but I know I may wait another day, and knowing my luck it will lol!

    How are you getting on? It must be tough with feeding the kids? I'm lucky as my daughter and husband are doing the best they can to cook their own dinners but every now and them I have to help my daughter as she not very experienced in the kitchen and it's so tempting to nick a pea, a chip or even lick my fingers, but I've resisted! I'm not going through this pain for nothing, let alone the money it cost lol

    Weigh in for you tomorrow! How are you feeling??? Good luck let me know how you get on!

    Oh I've found a fave book group called Cambridge diet 100% support group

    Take care and good luck for tomorrow x

    Well done Vanessa...day 4 already!!! I know how bad your probably feeling but ketosis will kick in. Sending loadsa luck your way for it to kick in soon. Honestly it will be worth it. Once your there you won't be hungry...my belly makes the odd grumble but that's all. Yes it's a very testing time cooking so much for the little ones and trying resist having a small nibble!! I'm getting better though and you will with time!


    I felt like I was dying. No energy...cold...sick....shivering. But you can do this!!

    Yes weigh in tomorrow. Feeling nervous!! It's an earlyish one so 11am will keep you posted.


    I found having some shakes warm really helped me get through the day. Do hope you feel better soon. Will have a look on the support page!! Thanks for sharing xxxx
